How old were you at your session?26, almost 27 :)
What made you decide to book a session?
I really wanted to do this for a wedding gift but chickened out and ended up not doing it. I kept seeing all of the amazing photos pop up on the Mad Chicken Facebook page and kept kicking myself for not doing it for our wedding. I saw the post one morning that they wanted to fill the rest of the sessions for the year and booked a session before I could talk me self out of it. Best decision I've made in a long time and it's going to make an amazing Christmas present!
What was originally holding you back from booking a session?
This is something I normally wouldn't do. I usually think of myself as more of an awkward, funny person than a sexy woman. Boy did Jes and Emily prove me wrong, I felt and looked amazing and sexy!
What were you most nervous about for your session?
I was nervous that I would look awkward in the outfits and poses or that my body wasn't perfect for something like this but that was not the case at all! They have so many outfits to pick from and accessories to dress it up and make you look like a super model! My makeup was perfect thanks to Emily and Jes walked me through and showed me each pose to make me look perfect! As soon as Jes took the first picture all of my nerves were gone!
How did you feel about yourself before your session?
I was nervous before my session, doubting myself about my body and how I would look in the photos. The drive there I kept talking myself in and out of why I was doing this. I'm so happy I didn't listen to my doubtful side, it was wrong, everything was perfect.
Describe your experience.
I was very nervous at first. I walked in and right away they were so energetic and excited for me to be there. They walked me through how the session was going to go and Emily showed me the closet of all the amazing outfits they had. They gave me time to try on outfits and pick out ones I loved, they were even so amazing and helped narrow down outfits and point out what ones would look amazing on me. Next, Emily had me hop in her chair and she worked her magic to make me look stunning! My hair and makeup were both perfect. After, Jes walked me through what she was thinking of shooting for each outfit and had me change into my first one. I was nervous walking out at first but those nerves went out the door right away. She's great to work with and every photo she takes makes you look incredible! I didn't want to stop taking photos!
How did you feel about yourself after your session?
I felt beautiful and on top of the world!
Were you nervous before your viewing session?I'm not sure if I was more nervous or excited for my viewing session but once she started to show me the photos I couldn't believe that was me! I loved every single photo I saw!
How did you feel about yourself after seeing your photos?
I felt amazing, beautiful and sexy! I didn't look awkward or shy like I thought I would. I loved my body and loved how I looked and felt!
What were your favorite products?I was in love with the leather bound book and the harlem box, I ended up going with the leather 8x8 book and can't wait to see the finished product!
What would you tell anyone interested, but maybe hesitant, in book a session of their own?
If you've ever once thought you'd want to do something like this, just go for it and do it!! It's such an amazing experience and something I wish I would have done sooner! Emily and Jes are so amazing and really do show you how incredibly beautiful and sexy you are!
How was working with Jes and Emily?
They are the best! They were so welcoming from the moment you walk through the door. They are both funny and very down to earth. And not to mention AMAZING at what they do!
Will you be doing another session?I'd LOVE to!
Anything else you want to add?
Just go for it, I promise you won't regret it!
